# Help with question on Wavelet Decomposition

Hi all,

I am newbie in wavelets..
Just read the MATLAB wavelet tutorial as I found it the simplest amongst others to understand..

I want to ask that during the DECOMPOSITION phase in the DWT, when a signal is convolved with HPF and LPF to yield details and approximation..

Q: How are the co-efficients chosen for the HPF and LPF so that they can be convolved with a given signal , say s. Assume, say I use daubechies 2 wavelet.

Q. If we go deeper down the decomposition level, say till 3 or 4, whatever.. do the values of the filter co-effiecients remain the same for HPF and LPF throughout different levels, or do they change ? If they change, how are these values determined then ?

Help would be appreciated

Regards

first part of it is enough for intuitive understanding basics of wavelet transform.

You can use any wavelet. But for every task there is optimal wavelets. Unfortunately, there is not too much papers about optimality of wavelets in different cases.

Coefficients remain the same from stage to stage.

PS.:Some similarity you can see in fractals
